The world is way off track from slashing emissions fast enough to avoid catastrophic consequences from the climate crisis. Radical shifts for how we power our homes and businesses and move around are essential to correct course and embark on a just transition to a net-zero future. Obviously, the same old approaches to tackling the climate crisis are just not cutting it. What — and who — will it take to truly rise to the challenge?

Join us on September 9 for a blunt and visionary conversation on what it will take to overcome barriers to exponentially ramp up climate action. You will hear from prominent youth activists, podcasters, low-carbon futurists, elected and corporate leaders, philanthropists, and researchers... how are we falling short? What climate solutions demand more of our attention and that of our peers, and what are dangerous and costly distractions? And ultimately what are the big, breakthrough ideas that will enable society to finally come to grips with the climate crisis, despite the political headwinds?
